    McAfee 8.7.0i Home edition keeps blocking Yahoo messenger and skype

      Hi, I use McAfee 8.7.0i Home edition in my home pc. It keeps blocking yahoo messenger and skype. Even though i removed these two programs from the Unwanted program policy and also added these to the exception list i am not able to access it.

       

      I get this error whenever i open messenger or  skype "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have appropriate permissions to access the item" I am not even able to reinstall it.
